Rat Zapper® Ultra
Special, Buy 2 Get 1 FREE Offer!
If you're looking to get rid of one rat or several large rats, the Rat Zapper® Ultra will deliver years of dependable service. This electronic rat trap is humane, safe, and easy to use. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to clear step-by-step instructions. Once the target enters the Ultra, two plates deliver a total of 8,000 volts for two minutes, ensuring high kill rates. And the "no touch" feature makes disposal a truly hands-off experience.
How It Works
The Rat Zapper® Ultra is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when the rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a quick, humane 8,000 volt shock. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill. You can "zap" 60 rats with one set of 4 “D” batteries, which makes it an effective rat trap.
Easy to Use
How easy are they to use? Very--and that's just one reason why they're so popular--just insert batteries, bait, place, turn it on and relax. First, insert 4 “D” batteries into the battery compartment. Using the entrance, bait the trap along the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, dry pet food or nuts. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Turn on the Rat Zapper® Ultra. A green light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.
The hands-free, "no touch, no view" disposal reduces the "yuck" factor of a common mouse and rat trap. Clean-up is easy and it can be reused indefinitely--your friends and family will want to borrow it for safe, humane rat elimination.
Safe and Sanitary
The Rat Zapper® Ultra is safe for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper® Ultra is both effective and environmentally friendly. It is ideal for attics, garages, basements and sheds. While it's always wise to use caution around children and pets, there is no blood, mess, chemicals, or poisons with the Rat Zapper® Ultra.

Review RateExcellent product that I recommend to friends and neighbors
I own a horse ranch and store feed in my barn. Rats have been an ongoing problem that defied prior chemical and/or mechanical traps. I purchased one trap and had instant success. Now have a total of five and trap several rats each week. Product definitely lives up to expectations. I'm careful when handling using gloves to minimize human scent. Having best results using rice bran pellets as bait. Do experience false positive red light flashing but attribute that to rats poking at lure bait near entrance.
Review Rate"red flashing light scares off rats"?????
I bought three of these because I was having difficulty with snap traps and traditional traps. the traditional traps were being set off every night and the bait was gone, but no rats were caught, so i purchased these electronic ones. I used the same peanut butter bait in a bottle top in the back of the electronic trap and there has been no results for weeks. I have the traps in the same place that I had the traditional traps which would go off every night and there has not been one bite. I am wondering if the Rats are scared off by the flashing red light on top of the electronic trap. Seems like they have been a waste of money.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback.
The red light will flash when there is a kill and when the batteries are low. We recommend not to use rechargeable batteries. This trap is covered by a one year replacement warranty.

Review RateNot a happy camper.
Not a single rat has been electrocuted by these three Rat Zappers In the time I have owned them. I have had them for over 8 months. Now to top it off, two of them won't even turn on. I am writing this review in the hope that I may win the drawing for $100.00 to recoup my loss. Nice job Victor!Response From Victor®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear about this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more. This trap is designed for indoor use and non-rechargeable batteries should be used.

Review RateElectronic Rat KillersSince moving on from the messy inhumane snap traps to The Woodstream Electronic
Zappers years ago I can testify to the convenience and reliability of your products.
No Mess humane killing.................Thank you.
Review RateWorks as advertisedI received my zapper a week ago. I got my first rat yesterday. It works exactly as intended. A red blinking light told me I had my first customer. I used a dog treat and a walnut for bait. It took a bit of time to work because the rats needed to get used to the presence of the trap. One down and a few more to go!
Review RateRat Zapper works flawlessly
The Rat Zapper is easy to setup and use. I just added batteries and 2 pieces of dry dog food and wait for the results. No hassles and works great!
Review RateRat Zapper - Rat Zapper purchaseWe bought 2 and got one free. These devices worked better than expected. We gotd 3 mice in the first 2 weeks, since then we got 3 more in next 2 weeks. I am very happy with the Zappers. I would recommend to a friend or anyone
Review RateSome of the best money ever spentI got these a few weeks ago not really believing they would work but hopeful. I was amazed that they worked right away. The wonderful thing is they keep on working and the ease and peace of mind is astounding. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Review RateDisappointedI purchased 3 Rat Zappers several weeks ago after being delighted with the effectiveness of the Mouse Zapper. I have used peanut butter, peanuts in the shell, cranberries and cat food. Have had two false alerts - no rats. They will take the bait left outside the trap, inside the trap before the electric plate, but will not go all the way in. I have left the device off, as well, so they would take the bait w/o getting shocked, but still will no go all the way in. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
A small amount of bait along the back wall is recommended. Adding bait around or in front of the trap has made the rats accustomed to the trap being there. Now remove those baits so that the only food source is at the very back of the trap. If peanut butter is not working well, try a small amount of the following. Avoid getting the bait directly on the metal plates.
Norway rats: hot dog, bacon, beef stick
Roof rats: nuts, dried fruit, berries

Rat Zapper® Ultra Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they’ll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we’re smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper®, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We’ve carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or goopy bait in your Rat Zapper® unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper®. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
Q: What type of batteries do I need?
A: The Rat Zapper® Ultra requires 4 “D” alkaline batteries which will provide approximately two years of stand-by power. Use high quality alkaline batteries to ensure the best results.
Q: What may affect the effectiveness of an electronic trap?
A: To ensure that your trap works when it is supposed to, keep the metal plates clean so the trap won’t trigger at the wrong time.
- Don’t over-bait, as excess food could drop onto the plates and activate the trap, after which any rodent may safely enter to remove the food.
- Make sure that the plates are clear of any debris, especially urine or hair from a recent kill that may interfere with the unit’s proper function. Remember, both plates need to be clean so that the electric circuit is made complete by the rodent stepping on both.
Q:What does it mean when the light blinks green? Red?
A: When you turn on the trap, the green light will stay on for 2 seconds to confirm the trap is on. Then the light is supposed to go off. The green light will also blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds. A blinking red light indicates that the batteries are running low and will need to be replaced.
